I talked to my colleagues about their methodologies in process, data sources, mapping, and modeling logic, and when that fourth day arrived, I was proud to present their leadership team with a working, multi-dimensional financial planning model. I’d used their real data so that they could instantly see value in the model and manipulate the data by date range, region, or industry.
They were impressed. And it proved that if I could get up to speed on Anaplan in four day’s time, their own staff could too!
The long and winding road to Anaplan
The lunch date that changed everything
When Anaplan had an opening for a Customer Success Business Partner, and I immediately jumped at the opportunity to join this small but extremely close-knit team. In my interview, I met my current manager, Chris. His passion for the work he was doing at Anaplan was evident. Like me, he came from a consulting background and took pride in helping companies solve their challenges. The Anaplan team’s dedication and energy for blazing a new trail in Australia was contagious. I still feel it every day. Everyone I work with is driven, innovative, and truly believes in Anaplan’s mission.
Getting up to warp-speed with Anaplan
My work is always pushing me to learn, change, and grow, and that’s the best part. When it comes to modeling in Anaplan, each experience is unique yet intuitive. As long as you understand the relevant business processes and what type of questions you want answered, you can build a model to get those answers. It’s that simple.
And because of this, when a client has a unique use case, I have confidence that we can solve it. That’s a pretty amazing feeling.
